Deinotherium


Just in case you hadn't seen enough weird prehistoric elephant-like animals today, here is a Deinotherium. Apparently it was the 3rd largest land mammal known to live -- larger than modern elephants.

I've obviously used something of the skin texture of an Indian elephant here. I often dislike it when artists draw too heavily from living animals when reconstructing extinct ones, but a bit of speckled skin maybe isn't too big a crime.

  2. Thanks, Ryan! Started this blog dealie pretty recently (as I'm sure you can tell!) but am going to try to update with reasonable frequency. Darn the NDAs, but with Brink actually coming out soonish I might get to show more soon. With luck, lots more!
